FAKE A DYE JOB
As we get older those gray hairs get peskier and peskier, and it we also get busier and busier, so it’s tricky to get into the salon every time our roots come in. The good news is there are products out there to help you.
You might be surprised to know that I have A LOT of gray hair especially considering I’m under 30, but given that my grampy is completely snow white, and all my aunts have been getting gray hair since I was child I’ve pretty much accepted my fate of going gray early. Which is why I held off coloring my hair until recently when it kind of got a little out of control.
Now you might be thinking Kayla your roots are your nautral color, and the dye is at the bottom of your hair this seems backwards for gray hair. But the ombre blonde actually helps to blend the gray in if that even makes sense. In any case I find it helps, and for the stragglers that are just at the top try using Joico’s Tint Shot Root Concealor. It’s a neat little flash dry product that you spray onto your hair, and it definitely covers your gray.
Pretty cool right? Just be careful though because it can get a little messy if you don’t pay attention to where you’re spraying (oops). Clearly it’s not a solution for not coloring your hair altogether (if that’s what you do), but it’s a great little product to push out that hair appointment. Get it here > Joico.com

MAKE FRIENDS WITH DRY SHAMPOO

DO BLUSH IN A RUSH
If you’re strapped for time, and you don’t have enough time to do an all over look grab some blush, and concealer. Toss the concealer under your eyes, and then add blush to your cheeks, and if you have another minute (just one) toss on some mascara, and you’re good to go. If there’s one product I won’t leave the house without it’s blush. It’s the single most effective way to (a) add color to your skin and (b) look awake!
